In this first video of the series, Dr. Menton and his students turn to the microscope to better understand how the various organs and organ systems work.


Finally you can explore human anatomy & physiology in a Creator-honoring way!

The human body is composed of many types of cells. But none of them perform their function well on their own because they were designed to function as part of something much more complex—you!

An adult has about a hundred trillion cells arranged in four primary tissues that make up all the organs of the body. The four tissues are epithelium, connective tissue, muscle, and nerve. An understanding of these primary tissues greatly aids in understanding the structure and function of the organs of the body.  Although our skin and kidneys look totally different to the unaided eye, under the microscope they are seen to be made up of a unique combination of the same four primary tissues.

A general understanding of gross anatomy is important to the student of human biology, but most organs reveal little about how they actually work when viewed in this way. As with most topics in this series, Dr. Menton and his students again turn to the microscope to better understand how the various organs and organ systems work.
